Reading Strategies

To visualize is to create a picture in your mind. The picture is evoked by descriptive details. Sensory language is used to help readers visualize ideas. Readers create images from text during and after reading. They use developing images to support their comprehension of the text.

Questions to help students visualize details from written text:

  • What pictures came into your mind as you read this paragraph? This selection?
  • What sensory details did the author use to help readers picture ideas?
  • What images did you see in your mind as you read the selection?
  • What sounds did you hear as you read?
  • What textures did you feel?
  • What words and phrases did the author use to evoke pictures in readers’ minds?
